  • Cadillac has started making some really nice automobiles, but needs to improve their customer service to be a true player in the luxury market.
  • Still gives me a woody after two years!
  • If I went to Lindsay Cadillac for all of my service issues I would have rated my experience and dealer as 10's
  • 2nd CTS-V and I could not be happier although a ZO6 is likely in my near future
  • It's nice to have a fast car that you don't see others of every time you go for a drive!
  • New differential with 06 upgrades. New Trans in 05. The Corsa exhaust makes me smile every taime I drive my V. Cadillac service is sporadic. I have to drive 90 miles to get real Cadillac service
  • Crestmont Cadillac technicians are union. They went on strike last fall for several months. The service is less than desirable.
  • great car, great quality, fun to drive, I'll buy another
